Breaking: “A Republican source says Rob Simmons told his staff Monday he will end his campaign for U.S. Senate at a press conference Tuesday morning in New London.”
Just got the e-mail from the Simmons camp:
MEDIA ADVISORY: SIMMONS TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT ON FUTURE OF SENATE CAMPAIGN (MYSTIC) –
Rob Simmons, candidate for US Senate, will make an announcement tomorrow, Tuesday May 25, at 9:00 am, on the future of the campaign:
WHO: Rob Simmons
WHAT: Announcement on the future of the campaign for U.S. Senate
WHEN: 9:00 am, Tuesday, May 25, 2010
WHERE: Lobby Radisson Hotel New London
While that doesn’t quite confirm it, if you’re calling a press conference about the future of your campaign, it means the future of your campaign is in doubt.
Dang. I liked the guy.
Peter Schiff is still in the running — he’ll have to take advantage of Connecticut’s open-primary law and petition his way onto the Aug. 10 primary ballot. Tonight, Linda McMahon appears near-certain to be the Republican nominee for Senate.
